Hello and welcome to our Blog. This is where we will post the news about everything that is happening at Present Perfect: new stock arrivals, product features, sales and promotions, or whatever may pop into our heads! We hope you enjoy reading. Please leave a comment. We're always happy to hear from you.
With only two weeks to go before the big day, the festive spirit is well and truly in the air. We have been rather busy since the beginning of December and it has been a pleasure to see those of you who have already popped into the shop. If you still have a few gaps in your shopping list, we may be able to help.
In December, we are open seven days a week until Christmas:
Sundays & Mondays 12 noon to 4 p.m.
Tuesday to Saturday, as usual, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
On Thursday, 17 December, along with some other Melrose shops, we shall be having a late night opening until 8 p.m. Why not call in to say hello?
Holiday Glow (cinnamon and cloves). This also comes in a reed diffuser, which means you can perfume your home without worrying about candle flames. Frazier Fir (the most natural pine fragrance ever, I think) or how about the new Peppermint Cocoa (just imagine your favourite mint chocolate!) In attractive glass or ceramic containers they will add to your decoration scheme.
We also have candles from the Irish company, Torc, in cinnamon or vanilla; attractively packaged, they make ideal stocking fillers at only £4.95.
All sorts of other candle-related items are available from inexpensive tea-light holders to candlesticks in crystal or mango wood. We also have several styles of hurricane lanterns, any of which can help to add a warm, welcoming glow to your home.
Of course, we have lots of other gift ideas: photograph frames, large and small; vases in glass, ceramic and metal; ornaments and home decor items; wall art, plus, of course, some beautiful table lamps. We also have gorgeous handmade jewellery including cufflinks and there are notebooks, notepads and address books in black or brown 'moc croc', ideal for men.
And, if your Christmas tree should need a little extra sparkle, we have a selection of decorations, including some cheery tin snowmen at £1.99. Go on, spoil it!
We hope all of that sounds tempting and look forward to wishing you the compliments of the season if you have the opportunity to call in. If not, then we hope that you will have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.
